you moms of girls know what I mean....
I shorten the jeans and then like 2 months later they are 2 inches too short...grrr
and when I say I shorten the jeans, I typically have to CUT 3-5 inches off and still leave enough for a new hem.
Ok, most of davi and hallies jeans have patches - holes!! (grrr...) that are intentionally there - stitching - beads - rhinestones - ribbon.... they have a lot of things added to the pockets, legs hems...
The other day I was packing away pants that were too short and hemming/cutting new pairs that were too long
Hmmm.... what if I added on this part of the jeans I just trimmed off to the short ones!?!?
I ran upstairs and pulled the short ones out of the attic and stitched the trimmed off cuffs to them! I used hot pink thread to sort of match the rest of the jeans and used a pair of cuffs that were lighter. I did zig zag and straight stitch to make them look funky.
wow..why didnt I think of this like 5 years ago?????
